Forecast

My Lovely Boy (10/3), Winsor Vixen (4/1), Balinaboola Steel (4/1), Moyode Lady (5/1), Oliver Hardy (8/1), Ainmisfearr (12/1), Le Hachette (14/1), Knock Na Rea (14/1), Helly Hansum (20/1), Aunt Eileen (22/1), Baltygirl (25/1), Attalco (28/1), I'm Serious (33/1), Four Country Roads (33/1), Forever Smiling (33/1), Maighnealta (40/1), Spittal Field (40/1)

Verdict
BALINABOOLA STEEL markedly bounced back to his best form under a well-judged ride on Wednesday and looks well equipped to go well once more. He isn't penalised for that victory and with a useful 7lb claimer on board, it deflates his mark to a very competitive level. My Lovely Boy was similarly a game winner last time out and has to be respected, but a 5lb hike suggests the handicapper might have his measure, while the likes of Windsor Vixen and Oliver Hardy took steps in the right directions last time, but need to find a little more on ratings to land a winning blow.
